As a divorce and parenting specialist, a divorced parent, and a step-parent, Amber M. Serwat has personal and professional experiences that have informed her work in divorce mediation. After experiencing her own messy divorce, she has made it her mission to help divorcing couples avoid an adversarial divorce, reduce conflict, and avoid common divorce mistakes that lead to high costs and broken relationships. Using her own divorce as a guide, she is able to help divorcing couples build trust, foster healthy communication, and effectively co-parent without leaving children caught in middle of a messy divorce. If you’re interested in pursuing a peaceful divorce with as little conflict as possible, Amber M. Serwat Mediation may be right for you – a Burnsville, MN divorce mediation center where we understand exactly how difficult divorces can be on a divorcing couple and their children. If you’re finding it difficult to come to agreement with your spouse after sitting down respectfully together, come to us, and we’ll help you improve communication and avoid divorce court.

Choosing Your Divorce Process

Many divorcing couples assume that, once they’ve unsuccessfully discussed their divorce with their spouse, it’s time to hire attorneys. However, this simply is not the case, and once you’ve hired an attorney, you effectively begin the adversarial divorce process, which almost always leads to a divorce trial. If you’re facing communication issues in a divorce, or if you’re finding you can’t agree on anything in your divorce, consider the alternatives to divorce lawyers and divorce court. By using a divorce mediator, you can save money on divorce court and divorce lawyer costs, and you’ll be able to avoid the intensely adversarial and confusing legal process of divorce. If you’re looking to find a peaceful end to your marriage, it’s important to understand what your divorce options are and how these options will affect you, your spouse, and your children. Divorce is overwhelming and challenging for everyone involved, and if you enter into a divorce process that you don’t understand, the only way it can end is with confusion and conflict.

Divorce Mediation Services

Divorces are notorious for causing difficult transitions in people’s lives, and so at Amber M. Serwat Mediation, we want to make these transitions easier by providing divorce mediation services that are more affordable than divorce lawyers or trials. When you’ve chosen the divorce mediation process rather than to hire divorce attorneys, you can be sure that you’ve chosen a divorce path that will benefit you and your family most so that everyone involved in a divorce is treated fairly. At our Burnsville, Minnesota divorce mediation center, we offer mediation services that include family mediation, early neutral evaluations, divorce and parenting coaching, parenting consulting, parenting time expediting, and MN family law basics education classes.
